This is more of a heads up. I have had a couple of people contact me 
that they can't use blogapi on their sites. They are hosted with 
different companies. Then I had someone using Wordpress tell me the same 
thing. It turns out there is a bug in libxml2 2.7.1 that is stripping 
out the opening <.

More info can be found on this Wordpress ticket:


And it appears that the CVS of libxml 2has been fixed:


It appears that as hosting companies are updating then they are breaking 
xmlrpc (and any other module that might rely on libxml2). I figured I 
would throw out a warning in case we see an increase in support or 
tickets on this.
